Dedicated follower of fashion!

I'm sure many of you have been browsing through pictures of glamorous models and actors attending the various awards ceremonies in the past couple of weeks, it's difficult not too.  While flicking through websites of designer gowns, shoes and amazing accessories I wondered how many of these celebrities actually chose their own outfits without being pressured by a PA, stylist or designer - I would imagine very few of them. 

I am no designer but I do work in an industry full of creative people who often express their personality through fashion.  Since working for various advertising agencies I have come across extremely talented creatives, designers, media buyers, digital wizards and artworkers who all have their own working style that is often portrayed through their personal style. 

I echo the thoughts of many designers when they say fashion is a personal statement and something you have to be comfortable with not something which you should follow.  A perfect example of this is Street Style which is formally described as offbeat fashion inspired by contemporary culture.  To me it's about real people setting their own trend, something the homogenous High Street may find difficult to contend with and something which designers find inspiration from. 

Take a look at my favourite street style photos from around the world on this very miserable Tuesday afternoon.  Enjoy xoxo

  1. Cosplay! So big in Hong Kong, Tokyo and South Korea. Unless you appreciate that fashion is a reflection of your individual cultural identity, you won't appreciate the very last picture. But that picture totally nails the essence of your latest blog :)

  2. '' personal statement and something you have to be comfortable '' - that answers my question on what you think fashion is. I couldn't agree more. Love the photos depicting the different styles in each city - so could it be a cultural thing or not so much?

  3. Thank you both for your comments.

    AB I agree that the last picture is definitely what Street Style encompasses for me.

    Astha Yes it's definitely a cultural contribution, could you name the country or city if I didn't label them?

  4. I know I'm commenting on an older post, but just wanted to say that I love your choice of shots for each city.

  5. Thank you Evie, I wanted to do justice to each city and am loving the contrast of fashion and backdrop xoxo
